About the Book
Inspired by craggy precipices, rolling mists, and the lush foliage of northwest Vietnam, Donald Cole presents a series of Mountain Visions, distilled and come to life through multiple approaches to process and materials. In the winter of 2009, Cole journeyed to the mountains of Vietnam north of Hanoi, just below China. On the wandering trails of Sapa the artist made drawings in his sketchbook inspired both by the vistas before him and a longstanding love for mountain landscapes depicted in traditional Chinese, Japanese and Vietnamese art.
